Well almost. Actually, that's a complete lie. I have NOTHING packed, but I do have most things purchased and listed, so that's a decent start. I actually pride myself on my efficiency of packing, thus I'm not too worried about that cherade. Naturally, I have many lists and checkmarks, and other such OCD things to help the process along.
What I AM worried about is making sure that I have all my school and work and life schtuffs taken care of before take off. Sheesh! My mind is complete mooshy moosh (way worse than mush, note) after sitting for 9 hours (9 HOURS I tell you!) at the Library trying to hash out a 10 page paper which for regular MPA students in the Governance and Econ class, is due May 10th. For me? Naw. Due tomorrow. Guess what though? Guess what? It's done. Darn strait it's done! Oh! Oh thank you! Applause! I had no idea! I'm touched.... truly. I'd like to thank the good people at the UofU Library snack bar for always having the SmartWater and Luna Bar sections well-stocked, the the UofU WiFi connection for never giving out on me, shout out to you, JSTOR (you know what you are!) for such brilliant articles from which I gleaned such fabulous quotes... and of course... to you, cushy round library chair, for offering your support and wide arm rests without complaint. I salute you all! Without you, none of this would've been possible!
SO! School! That leaves one test today and a few little this and thats, and I'm free from my second semester of MPA graduate studies, and off to a MUCH needed vacation in the land of Wats (and what nots... te he he... never gets old). Elephants! Fruit! Monkeys! Miles of white sandy beaches! $10 massages! Civil Unrest! Oh wait... scratch that last.
I'd thank you all to wish me luck as I may not be back (well clearly physically I KNOW I won't be back) bloggering until sometime after May 15th. There will be many pictures to post and adventures to discuss - you can be CERTAIN of that!
Now... back to it.... shoulder to the wheel... onward onward
